Fathom Nickel Inc. (CSE: FNI) is preparing to kick-off its 2023 exploration campaigns following the receipt of the Gochager Lake Exploration Permit, with field crews mobilising in Saskatchewan.
Drilling will commence on or about February 10 at Gochager Lake, where the Project is host to disseminated – massive sulphide nickel-copper-cobalt mineralization.
For the first time in the history of the project, the company will employ borehole electromagnetic surveys (BHEM) in an effort to delineate semi-massive to massive zones of nickel-copper-cobalt mineralization. Nickel-copper-cobalt mineralization was first recognised on the property in the late 1960’s.
“The Gochager Lake Project is an important addition to the company’s portfolio of ‘battery metal’ projects,” CEO and VP Exploration, Ian Fraser, said.
“We look forward to applying BHEM in our effort to delineate zones of semi-massive to massive nickel-copper-cobalt mineralization within broader disseminated mineralization that defines the historic Gochager Lake deposit.”
The Albert Lake Property and Q1-2023 Exploration Programme
The company has also commenced exploration at Albert Lake. A crew has been mobilised to initiate gravity survey coverage over the Tremblay-Olson Claims area. Fathom conducted a gravity survey in 2021 in the historic Rottenstone Mine area and this survey proved instrumental in defining the structural corridor that is host to The Bay Island Trend.
The gravity survey will tie into the existing gravity stations and is expected to take up to 10 days to complete.
Results of this survey will be utilized, along with other geophysical models the company has been developing, to target drill locations within the Tremblay-Olson Claims area.
